Over the course of the 90 minutes at the iPro Stadium on Saturday afternoon, hosts Derby had 53% of the possession, took 10 shots of which just two were on target, and earned two corners.
Visitors Forest had 47% of the possession, took eight shots of which only one was on target, and earned seven corners.
